Message

“Everyone else has already bought it.”

Group mentality, lack of critical thinking skills, lack of decision making skills are one of the Japanese mentality.

So people do what other people do and buy what other people buy.

Ethnic joke to describe Japanese mentality

On a luxury cruise ship, the Titanic of Noah’s Arks if you will, every nationality in the world is represented on board. But suddenly the ship springs a leak and begins to sink. Sadly, there aren’t enough boats for everyone. The women and children have filled up all the boats, and the ship’s captain needs to persuade the men to jump into the sea. What does the captain say to each guy to make him jump?

To the Japanese… “Everyone else has already jumped.”
